We're all looking for ways to save some money. Now there's a new gas saving trend you may want to grab onto this summer.

Scooters and motorcycles are becoming more popular as gas prices continue to rise.

The alternate form of transportation offers great fuel efficiency, and even beats out most hybrid vehicles.

Some of the scooters and cycles can get 100 plus miles per gallon.

"That's the conservative end of it. For sure we get a 100 miles per gallon in traffic, in town on the motorcycles and the scooters," Roger Wagner with American Aerospace said. "Some of our customers say they get up to 130 miles per gallon or more."

If fuel efficiency wasn't enough to tempt you into considering one of these.

The owners of American Aerospace are also giving everyone who buys one of their scooters or cycles this summer, a free seaplane ride over Lake Bryan.

Another cheap solution people are grabbing onto is the good old fashion bicycle.

Shops like Aggieland Cycling are seeing a steady number of people coming in to inquire about this alternative form of transportation.

The bike shop says many customers say they just can't afford the fuel for their vehicle, and want to return to the two-wheel favorite.
